Maybe had the shooter had a small amount of marijuana on them, they would have broken down the door.

Every single development just destroys EVERY f*cking pathetic, weak-kneed Republican response about guard and arming teachers and all that bullsh*t.

Every. Single. Update.

But see, if we just had more people with bigger guns, they totally would have gun in and saved the day in time.

Goddammit.

I was trying not to read anything else because it's just destroying me, and then I see this headline.

Legally police are not bound to respond to a 911 call.

Legally police cannot be held responsible for murdering people except in extreme circumstances.

What the fark are we paying these arseholes for?

Protection. Like when you pay the guy that comes to your shop and says it'd be a shame if there was a fire, but he's selling fire insurance.

Republican logic: Clearly the problem is they didn't have enough guns to stop the shooter. We need to arm the children.

The elephant in the closet here is that civilian police officers are not obligated to sacrifice their lives to protect people. They may choose to do so out of a sense of duty, but at the end of the day it's just a job.

The reason we're pissed off is because police propaganda has falsely led us to believe police all carry that sense of duty and self sacrifice, so that we keep voting to fund them with our tax dollars. Certainly some do, but it's not required.

The only people required to sacrifice their lives for their country are military.

Arm them with guns that shoot tiny little guns that come out firing.

I want to rant, but I'm honestly too outraged to do so. I cannot imagine the shiatstorm that's about to break over that community - their government failed them at a fundamental level, and nothing says "goddamned coward" like "hiding in a hallway while a gunman shoots kids."

Saw a tweet, I'll see if I can find it. Basically this:

If you are a police office, people don't care if you live or die when it comes to a school shooting. If kids die and you weren't willing to die instead of them YOU HAVE FAILED AND THAT IS HOW IT SHOULD BE. You shouldn't be a police officer.

Get a job that you can handle.

I don't care if police officers are stressed on their jobs! Or said better: I would be more than willing to help police officers with their stress if they were doing the farking right things. But they aren't. At every turn is failure. '

This is why people say defund the police: they aren't doing their jobs and are doing the literal opposite of what they should be doing.

The police have their roots as slave hunters and goons hired by business to protect goods from other businesses and the public. Did you actually think they were here to protect your average citizens?

We can walk and talk shiat at the same time, but yes. It's all made worse because it is easier to buy high powered armaments than marijuana.

It's just so painfully obvious what Texas is doing here. They want to blame anything and everything for this...teachers, "mental health", video games, unlocked doors...anything and everything except their stupid farking guns.

Looks...no one with half a brain thinks there's a catch-all solution to things like this.  Something this awful and complex requires two things: 1. farking effort and 2) a holistic approach using multiple vectors in hopes of mitigating a very real SCREAMING IN AGONY problem.

They have tried nothing and they are all out of ideas.

Jesus.

The protection of property. To be more precise, the protection of rich people's property.

If saving children from a murderer doesn't motivate someone to rip a door down with their fucking teeth if they have to, fuck being in the wrong line of work, are they even human?

The Uvalde massacre happed one day before the anniversary of the George Floyd killing, where a cop was more than willing kill an unarmed, handcuffed, black person, while other cops did nothing to stop it. Yet in Tuesdays' school shooting, the cops there were in no hurry to stop an active threat at all.
 
2022-05-27 4:33:15 PM  
It's sad that the following snark is necessary, but aren't any of these kids Farkers? They would have gotten a better response if they called 911 and said a blah kid had stolen cigarettes.

This realization certainly makes us question again why we spend so much money on city police departments. Seems like that money could be directed toward something more effective at making our communities better places to live.

Even though 911 calls from kids in the building were rolling in at the time. All of these farkers are criminally negligent, and chose to beat up on distraught parents rather than put their precious little asses in danger.

What a pack of turds.

Bullies tend to avoid actual threats, but they were embarassed so they beat up someone nearby.

they should have sent in a few pizza delivery drivers or convenience store clerks. they face far more danger than any cop on a regular basis (look it up), and they actually make more money than they cost.  think about the fact that those pigs eat 40% of the entire city budget, and do jack shiat for anyone.

Or they should have said there's an abortion happening in one of the classrooms. Entire state police would have shown up.

So rich white people feel safe. Literally.

As ridiculous as some of the "progressive" posturing is, they're not wrong about that.

The police are now, clearly, basically protection for rich white people and nobody else. And it seems that's all they've ever been.
